In the last few months the Irish Dominicans have done a few parish mission, notably in September a mission in the Parish of Keady, Derrynoose & Madden in Co. Armagh and in the Parish of St. Peter’s in Drogheda Co. Louth in November.
On these missions a number of Dominican brothers go to a parish to lead the mission. Usually the mission consist of two or three session per day which can either take the form of the celebration of Mass or an hour of prayer with for example exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. During the week confession are heard after each session and often a whole day is dedicated to confessions where a priest would be available from de morning till the evening. Where time permitting part of the missions is also to visit local school and those housebound.
The missions are always a great source of hope and energy, and it is a privilege to be able to minister on these missions! Please keep our missions and ministries in your prayers!
